"self-published my first fiction novel "Telesa:The Covenant-Keeper" as an e-book and a print book. I have spent the last eight months writing, editing, proofing and formatting my own manuscript."

Certainly an intriguing beginning ....!!

@Sleepless in Samoa. Thoughts from the Quiet Side of Midnight...

"Lots of people everywhere seem to really be enjoying Telesa. And I still can't believe it. Other people actually are as obsessed as I am with Daniel and Leila's story! How cool is that?  Gleeful skittery skipping all over the place. The beautiful Jillian Dodd ( author of That Boy) has compared an author's books to her children. I agree. You spend so much time writing them and preparing them to go out into the big bad world and you worry whether everyone will 'be nice' to them. And when, ohmiflamingTelesaFireHeck your book finds people who actually love it, stay up all night to read it, read it 3,4,5 times, watch the book trailer every morning....well, you get kinda ridiculously buzzed. Wow.

I want to tell you that I am so grateful to all of you that have taken the time to read Telesa. Maybe you've reviewed it, tweeted about it, shared it on Facebook, or encouraged a friend to read it. Maybe you have sent me an email or left me an online message about the book. I read them all. And yes, I squeeeee and tell the Fab5 to come quick and check it out. (and yeah, they roll their eyes and tell me to try to at least pretend to be cool.)  And yes, I've probably cyber-stalked your Telesa conversations (because that's what Loser Uncool Authors do.) I am so grateful for your encouragement and support. I'm new to this. I have so much to learn and a long way to go - but it's exciting to be taking this journey with all of you!"

Title: Telesa: When Water Burns - Book 2

Lani Wendt Young says Book 2 is coming soon!
Check out her blog:
"And yes, you are not imagining things, that IS a 'taulima' (arm band tattoo) on Leila's arm. And yes, I know she only had a 'malu' tattoo in the first book...and if you could see his chest, you would note that Daniel also has a new tattoo. Both have special significance, both will be explained in book two."
